The tub and the duct tape

There was a hole in the bathtub. I don’t remember how the hole got there, but it was there. The tub was one of those shower tub combo fiberglass units. It was the only semi-working tub in the house and since the family like to take soaker baths, what did we do? Replace the tub? Nope, we did what any self respecting family in Idaho Falls would do. We tried to patch it with duct tape. 🙂 In my earlier years, I didn’t understand why Dad didn’t just replace it, but after having finished the basement of my own house, including the bathroom, I understand how much work it would have been to replace it. Still I look back at that with much amusement.
